states. hispanic children are at the highest level of poverty in the history of the united states. i think the challenge is not how to bring them over to immigration reform or dialogue. just to make sure the latino community knows these facts and understands the failure of president obama. >> i agree with you there is a lot of ammunition. these comments about self deportation have indicated to some in the community he does not have respect for them. go to south texas and talk to latino ranch and farm owners and small businesses and members of the hispanic community. they are hard asses because they are the first to feel the adverse affect. cartels are shooting at them. are competing for jobs. there are a lot of reasons why they are hard asses but they do want to know the presidential candidate has respect for the community and in recognition this is not all a mexican problem. half the people here illegally came from hong kong the, nigeria on a visa and overstating it. the fact that all the people from central america are unworthy is a real problem. >> thank you. >> we will get behind
viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> the historic headline from the white house this week, the president of the united states endorses same-sex marriage. but the story behind the headlines may be just as dramatic and it culminated with vice president joe biden apologizing to president obama for forcing his hand on this hot button issue, a sore subject among some white house insiders. our chief whereas correspondent jessica yellen has been working the story for us. tell our viewers what you are hearing right now. >> i understand the vice president apologized to the president for putting him in a tough position on this situation and the president gave an understanding reply saying he knows that the vice president was speaking from the heart. the vice president's office also issued a statement saying it was the president who has been the leader on this issue since day one and the vice president never intended to distract from that. president obama says he was planning to say this sometime before the democratic convent
information on the breaking news story, the united states with the help of allies foils a terrorist plot to bomb an air liner and an in-depth look at the key issues in the 2012 presidential election and president obama's report card on i am gags. plus, exactly six months from now, a new polling shows an incredibly tight race and the romney and obama campaign confront a pair of tough questions. >> we start with dramatic breaking use. new information coming in by the minute on a new terror plot foiled by the united states and its allies. it is said to involve putting a suicide bomber aboard an air liner. it was foiled and the u.s. recovered and is now studying the explosive device. let's bring in fran townsend who was president bush's homeland security advisor and also with us tom fuentes. fran, i want to go to you first. from your sources with he are hearing that this was an upgrade if you will. do you remember the underwear bomber, that this was a way to upgrade the technology into an ie d and explosive device. what do you know? >> just speaking to a senior administration official t
president of the united states of america. the president sets the policy. i am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women and heterosexual -- men and women marrying all are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties and, quite frankly, i don't see much of a distinction beyond that. >> those words sparked a quick response, not from republicans, but from the president's own campaign. what the vp said that all married couples should have the same legal rights is precisely potus' position. that's exactly what david axelrod tweeted, so the vice president gets out in front of his boss on an issue that on the ballot tuesday in north carolina, a presidential battleground state. a biden gaffe or is it a trial balloon? the answer depends on who you ask, and we'll get much more into this debate coming up in moments right here on cnn. meantime, there's a major shift in the halls of power for a key u.s. ally. france's new president is a socialist. francois hollande beat conservative incumbent nicolas sarkozy in sunday's ru
to blow up a passenger jet bound for the united states. a u.s. counter terrorism official tells cnn the explosive device is similar to the one used by the would-be underwear bomber. just like that bomb, there one did not contain metal, which raises real questions about whether it could have gotten passed airport security. as of yet, the person who had developed that bomb had not yet bought a ticket. here's defense secretary, leon panetta. >> what this incident makes clear is that this country has to continue to remain vigilant against those that would seek to attack this country and we will do everything necessary to keep america safe. >> fran townsend is cnn's national security contributor, a member of both the dhs and cia external advisory boards. chad sweet is a former dhs and cia official, also the cofounder of the chertoff group, a global security firm. good to see both of you. fran, i know you've been reporting on this throughout the day. we're hearing now that there could have been this bomb and other bombs, perhaps. how close of a call was this? >> you know, the official i s
bombs so they understand the target and they're a close ally of the united states and this administration official stressed to me that this really was an international effort although they also stress that this bomb never made it to their knowledge near an airport or an airplane prior to coming into their possession as far as their investigation has shown, and it was never a threat to the united states, so that means one of two things to me, john. either this was an early stage, this bomb plot, or it may have been made inneither by the u.s. or a security service which is why they wouldn't fear it detonating. >> an intelligence success in keeping it from either being able to be used or keeping the bomber from buying a particularet and getting on a plane, whatever, and the question now is if they were developing this new technology what is it capable of and what have they learned? here is what the fbi says tonight. as a result of close cooperation with our security and intelligence partners overseas, annum proceed iz voo the explosive device designed to carry out a t
to see the united states senate taking a more conservative track. >> even high school is not off limits. >> i did some stupid things in high school, and if i hurt anyone, i am sorry and apologize for it. >> lawmakers still at it. voters in europe trigger a political tsunami. >> money flows like water, and if the dam breaks some place, it could flood, even here in america. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> vice president joe biden has acquired a reputation as a person afflicted with foot-in- mouth disease. on last sunday's "meet the press," he said that gay marriage is fine with him. >> i'm comfortable with the fact that man marrying men, women marrying women, are entitled to the same rights. >> that caused a major flat amid the chattering classes, and by midweek, in an interview with robin roberts, the president suggested joe biden had jumped the gun. >> he got out a little bit over his skis. >> the president says he had already made the decision to come out in favor of gay marriage before the democratic national convention in north carolina in septemb
as a result of the economy. the unemployment rate in the united states is around 8% and in france, it is 10%. they have to find a way to get the euro zone out of this mountain of debt. the difference between sarkozy and hollande is that sarkozy and the german chancellor came to a consensus to cut spending. but hoeland says we need a growth plan. and that sounds good but you have to find money somewhere. what are you going to do? raise taxes? get money from the central bank? all of those are details that need to be hammered out. and uncertainty is an issue for markets including the u.s. markets, don. >> and the interesting thing. the americans want to know what about me? so it will affect the u.s. markets. but obviously when people went to the polls to vote in france they weren't thinking about the world economy or the european economy or the euro zone. they wanted their own country with those measures they don't like. that's what they went to vote on. >> look, you know what strikes me is i live in the u.s. and reporting on the french election and when i asked ordinary french people what is
in yemen. he had been indicted in the united states on 50 terrorism counts. the fbi had offered a $5 million reward for his capture. >>> a deadly day for troops in afghanistan. a gunman dressed in an afghan army uniform shot and killed a nato service member before being killed by coalition forces. and in another province, a roadside bomb exploded killing one american and wounding two others. the explosion hit a vehicle carrying sufficient troops near an outpost close to the pakistan border. >>> the lawyer for 9/11 mastermind khalid shaikh mohammed says the military justice system is rigged, so he can't do his job. mohammed and four defendants were arraigned saturday in guantanamo bay, cuba. the hearing dragged out for 13 hours as the five accused conspirators did everything in their power to defy the court. despite the protests, the military's chief prosecutor says the trial will be fair and just. >> for those who lost family or friends on september 11th, or who were injured in the attacks, no words are adequate for this moment. but know that however long the journey, and this arraig
to the united states to study. before, secretary of state clinton worked out this apparent deal with the beijing government mitt romney weighed in and here is what he had to say about the cheng case and what at that point seemed to be the fact that he had been turned over to the chinese without any protections. >> this is a dark day for freedom and it is a day of seam for the obama administration. >> question, did governor romney overrehe act in the middle of a diplomatic crisis? >> i don't think so. first of all, i think it crisis is a reminder of what we are dealing with in china and we hope there are reformers in that government pushing for a more open system. what we though we are dealing with now are people that are paranoid and control freaks in a totaltarrian system. they control everything from the words you have search for on the internet and who gets to visit this gentleman when was in the hospital. secondly there is the prospencity that the administration seems to have of an unwillingness to forcefully assert america's values. we saw that tragically in 2009 in the green revolution in
the best math scores. ...the united states would be on that list. in 25th place. let's raise academic standards across the nation. let's get back to the head of the class. let's solve this. >>> jack cafferty is here with "the cafferty file." jack? >> wolf, president obama's support for same-sex marriage is sure to fire up parts of the liberal base it could alienate other parts including black voters. in other words, backing gay marriage might be a risky proposition for the president in an election year when it comes to one of the core voting blocs. in 2008, you'll recall african-americans were crucial in making this president the first black president. 96% of black voters supported obama and they made up 13% of the electorate. fast forward four years approximately while polls suggest america on the whole is moving toward supporting same-sex marriage. nbc-washington post voting say 56 are opposed to it and this opposition from blacks could hurt the president especially in the south. just this week, north killer carol blacks voted two to one in favor of an amendment in that state bannin
. >> is that what you believe? you're comfortable with same-sex marriage? >> i'm vice president of the united states of america. the president sets the policy. i am absolutely comfortable with the fact that many marrying men, women marrying women and heterosexual are entitled to the same right, all civil rights and liberties and i don't see much of a distinction beyond that. >> in a second term will this administration come out behind same-sex marriage? >> i can't speak to that. i don't know the answer to that. >> you can see in his response there at the end to the question of second term policy making that he thinks he might have gone too far. perhaps minutes after the remarks on sunday senior obama campaign advisor tweeted what vp said that all married couples should have the same rights is potus's position which is not exactly true. he didn't just say that gay couples have the same right, he said they should be able to get married. the reason the obama campaign was in a rush to assure everyone that news was not made because the president is not a supporter of the freedom to marry. despite a 1996
republican seat. she will be a terrific general election candidate and a great addition to the united states senate. >> caller: she is running against a war hero, bob kerry, who is very popular. so this will be fascinating. >> it is interesting, the polls shower, even as not well known as she was, beating kerry handily, in large part because he has spent the better part of a decade, living in new york city, contemplating a run for mayor in new york city. that's not a good way to get favor in nebraska. >> greta: coming up, vice-president joe biden gets very loud. what got him so riled up? you have to hear the fiery speech. next. obamacare or no care? some college students are going to end up with no insurance. and the university president says the president's health care law is to blame. preliminary rivals or frenemmies. chris christie is teaming up with a democratic mayor. what is the duo up to? you have to see it to believe it. you do not want to miss this. what makes sam adams boston lager great is as simple as abc. a, the appearance. amber.

, maximum pepsi taste. [cheers and applause] >> jon: welcome back. my guest tonight is the united states ambassador to nato. please welcome ambassador ivo daalder. [cheers and applause] hello, sir. nice to see you. come and sit. how are you? >> great. >> jon: it's nice to see you. i would think people would be surprised to find out that we have an ambassador to nato which is not a country it's a group of fighter jets. [ laughter ] but is this -- have we always had an ambassador? does each country have an ambassador? >> we're 28 members and each country has an ambassador just like in the united nations where each country has an ambassador there. nato was a military alliance so we do have a lot of fighter jets as countries but i'm -- i represent the united states at this small little round table where we do a lot -- >> jon: is it really a round table? >> it really is. it's round. >> jon: all 28 countries. >> how little is the table. is it giant? how uncomfortable. in terms of spacing how much room do you have around this small table? >> got news is the united states comes last in the alpha
for himself and not the president of the united states. >> david axelrod tweeted this "what vp said that all married couples should have exactly the same legal rights is precisely the position." >> jon: hash tag bieber just a refresm. he said it's the position because vp said hash tag gay marriage good lol. it's probably not as simple as vp and potus have same position. jay carney. >> let me be clear. the vice president said what the said about the protection of rights with citizens is consistent with the president's position on this issue. the president has spoken about this. the president is the right person to describe his own personal views. he, as you know said his views on this were evolving. >> jon: ah. [ laughter ] so with regards to gay marriage the vice president's new position is consistent with the president's position which has not changed and is also changing. [ laughter ] that's not a social policy that's a zen cone. mr. carney -- >> it is as it was, yes. [ laughter ] >> jon: it is as it was. [ laughter ] and what master is the sound of one man sweating? and why are they sweat
a letter, about the obama administration is allowing children who are not citizens of the united states to come across the border into your state unlawfully? >> about 80% of all of these unaccompanied minors are coming in across texas border. you go back and illegal immigration has been an issue for many years here. compounded by the drug cartels realizing that the mexican u.s. border they could operate without impunity. they have operational control on some sides of the border. we have 23 citizens in mexico most likely, i don't know if they have been identified yet, cartel battle going on there. you have the illegal immigration issue and compound it with the drug cartels. then a new phenomenon we are seeing now. this is within the last six months or so. we've seen 5200 unaccompanied young people, we're talking to 8 to 9-year-olds that are coming from south america and we don't know all the details yet about how mexico is dealing with this. they are coming to the texas border and crossing the border. and taking them into refugee resettlement, vast majority we had 1400 of them in just in
of the united states. what was remarkable is what mitt romney didn't say. he didn't explain a single thing that he learned as the leader of bain capital that would translate into being president of the united states. i think that was the problem. up with specific thing he did say that we could really learn from is he talked about one company that bain capital did invest in, which is a company that bain capital invested $18 million in. maybe he learned that government helps create jobs twice as much as private equity. >> what was your reaction? >> i thought it was really weird. it seemed like our decision was no decision at all. you just said i don't know. that is what we are seeing over several days. this was an interview that was by no means a hard ball set of questions but basic questions like tell us what you did and is this what you need to know? i have learned a lot in my entire life. it made it sound like he had more to hide than he has to hide. >> he started attacking the president. it was as if the interview was with a surrogate of the president as opposed to the candidate himself.
